Africans don't travel. They mass-evacuate. You won't believe how much luggage they take with them on the plane. I saw two women with huge television screens and a guy with an enormous plastic wrap that could only contain a cow's hind quarter.
And then there's the bartering. You can only take 46kg per person on the plane, so if they suspect you've got less you'll get an endless stream of people asking if you want to take part of their luggage with you. That's a definite no from me. In these times of drug trafficking and exploding terrorist devices, I'm not going to take some stranger's luggage with my on the plane.
Air France staff didn't help either, they are so slow that glaciers go 'Wiiiiiiiiiiiieee!!!' and overtake them.
